Meta (Facebook) and YouTube have announced steps to block Russian state media from monetizing on their platforms following the country's invasion of Ukraine.

Nathaniel Gleicher, head of security policy at Facebook, tweeted:

"We are now prohibiting Russian state media from running ads or monetizing on our platform anywhere in the world. We also continue to apply labels to additional Russian state media. These changes have already begun rolling out and will continue into the weekend."

"We are closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and will keep sharing steps we’re taking to protect people on our platform."

"We’ve previously deployed this tool elsewhere around the world to help protect people in situations that are unsafe, including Afghanistan."

YouTube announced similar actions in a statement to Reuters. The company barred media outlet RT and other Russian channels from receiving money for advertisements that run with their videos

Citing "extraordinary circumstances," YouTube said it was "pausing a number of channels’ ability to monetize on YouTube, including several Russian channels affiliated with recent sanctions."

Yesterday, Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov wrote an open letter to Tim Cook urging the Apple CEO to cut Russia off from the company's services. Apple has yet to take respond.
